BSC Representation and Votes
|Warning: Obsolete as of March 2015|
As of the 2015 bylaw referendum, each Director has exactly one vote, regardless of occupancy. This page should be treated as purely historical.
The Board of Directors is the sole governing body of the BSC. Beginning with five voting members in 1933, the Board has grown to 29 voting members. This includes 27 member Reps, 1 alumni rep, and 1 BSCEA rep (BSC Employee Association). Each house elects its own rep(s). The President of the Alumni Association appoints the Alumni rep. The EA Rep is elected by the BSCEA. In addition to the voting directors, a number of others are required to attend the Board Meetings. This includes the President, five Vice-Presidents, the Executive Director, the Operation Manager (must attend or submit report), and the Member Advocate (must attend all meetings involving cases). Also, all members are welcome to attend, speak, and make motions. Representation is based on one rep per 70 members, with each house receiving at least one rep. Each rep gets as many votes as members they represent (during a roll-call). The following is a house breakdown of all directors and votes they represent (when there are no vacancies):
|HOUSE||# OF REPS||VOTES PER REP||Max /house|
|African American Theme House||1||21||21|
|Andres Castro Arms||1||56||56|
|Cloyne Court||3||49, 49, 50||148|
|Euclid Hall 1||24||24|
|Fenwick Weavers Village||2||47, 48||95-101|
|Rochdale Village||4||65, 65, 65, 64||259|
|EA||1||16 (smallest unit -1)||-|
|Presidential Appointee UC or Alumni||1||6||-|
|BSC President||1||Breaks and makes ties|
During the summer, all units receive one vote only
Actual number of votes cast at a meeting reflects actual occupancy as of the day of the meeting and will be based on the Operations Manager’s “Membership Report” presented at the beginning of each Board meeting. The numbers presented are based on Move-In Day information. Unpopulated houses have 0 occupancy and therefore, no votes.
